Roger et Didier Raimbault – Vieilles Vignes 2015 – Sancerre

The nose is slightly powerful and slightly concentrated. It reveals notes of ripe/crushed red berres and cassis associated with small notes of blueberries, fleshy Gariguette strawberry as well as a subtle hint of flowers, spices, oak and a very discreet hint of chocolate (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced, slightly unctuous and offers a beautiful mineral frame, fat, minerality, a beautiful juiciness, a beautiful definition, a slight freshness as well as harmony. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy raspberry, Gariguette strawberry and small notes of blackberry associated with slight touches of blueberries, flowers, licorice, vanilla/oak and an imperceptible hint of Sichuan pepper (in the background). Tannins are well-built and (very) slightly firm. Good length.
